Happy News! I am FINALLY through the overwhelming surge in orders and orders are now shipping within 2-4 days. I sincerely appreciate your support and patience as we navigate through these challenging times.

We ship to valid US addresses via the USPS with the exception of Hawaii, please see below.

Important Notes:
  1. When your order is shipped it is assigned a tracking number. Please monitor the progress of your delivery via USPS Tracking.

  2. Contact your post office directly if there is an issue with delivery.

  3. Once your order enters the postal system it is beyond my control.

  4. If your order is received damaged or if it goes missing in the USPS system AND you have insurance, you must file a claim with your post office before a replacement / refund is issued.

  5. Great Lakes Staple Seeds is not liable for damage to or loss of packages sent uninsured.

  6. The domestic "Shipping" fee includes the costs associated with electronic payment (roughly 3%) and packaging, in addition to the actual postal cost. I realise that the stated rates may seem high but unlike companies that hide their "free shipping" costs in higher seed packet prices, I believe a one-time fee that includes processing is reasonable and more fair to my customers. Any profit made in shipping is negligible to non-existant.

  7. Shipping to Hawaii: currently I am not shipping to Hawaii while I verify the legality of me doing so; this is a result of Hawaii: Summaries of Exterior Quarantines which sure as heck implies it is not legal.
